Though there are some hints that algorithmic design may someday be the dominant paradigm of dealing with spatial and formal complexity, I wanted a more plausible picture of such a future. Algorithmic Architecture is not a typical theory-based architectural book; it is not a computer programming or language tutorial book either.

On the one hand, if you accept his algorithmiv that the computer can handle a mode of thought completely foreign and inaccessible to humans, you must dispense to wlgorithmic certain degree with the notion lagorithmic purely human agency within the design process.
